If you re-read what I wrote, you'll know I'm talking about the LOWER grills and NOT the kidneys.

I always figured, If I was ever going to go the gloss black route for my grills, that I would just call the shop I usually deal with and ask them to tell me when they are painting any black cars.

Should be able to paint the grills at that time for a minimum cost. They always have paint left over for small jobs like this. And then its done properly, and won't chip.

Haven't had time to check yet. Been busy with work. Will let you guys know as soon as I get a price. If anyone is interested in a group buy maybe we can get a further discount.

I called marinello BMW and was given a price of 74 each side before tax. Would love to find them about 100 for pair. That's what tischer has them before shipping.

If you speak to Mike at Maranello and sign up for a maxbimmer.com user name he will give you 20% off all BMW parts. After the discount I bought the gloss black grills for 128+tax. $52/side for the lower and $12/side for the upper section that attaches to the hood.
